Boxing Champions List: WBA conspicuously absent from WBC Ratings

World Boxing Council chiefs released the ratings from the recently-staged 57th Convention in Cancun with a noticeable absentee once again.

WBN noticed a while back that the WBA champions no longer featured on the WBC list. It was thought to be a potential oversight.

But low and behold in the latest update, the WBC has not placed the WBA title holders alongside the IBF and WBO.

Their rankings now only feature those two other bodies in what could be perceived in several ways.

Gilberto Mendoza, the WBA President, was in attendance in Mexico for the WBC Convention, but it’s not known whether any talks were held on the matter.

It’s a highly unusual turn of events for an organization to not place the WBA when representing the other two top sanctioning bodies.

The World Boxing Association list does contain the current WBC champion, so it will be interesting to see if that’s the case next month.
